Wound Care Management
Most healthy patients that have an open wound can heal properly without a problem. But some patients may need a providers help. Someone with underlying health problems like diabetes, venous insufficiency, or dementia may have a more challenging time healing and need a wound specialist’s help.
WHAT IS A WOUND SPECIALIST?
A wound specialist can care for and treat acute, chronic, and non-healing wounds.
That’s where Dr. JoEun Gilland, ARNP, can help! She is board certified as a wound specialist and has undergone advanced training to truly understand a chronic wound and prescribe the best course of treatment.
Often, a Primary Care Provider can temporarily treat the problem but then may need to refer you to a wound specialist. A wound specialist can provide close monitoring, debridement, and find proper treatment based on your condition or needs.
WHO CAN BE TREATED?
Patients with diabetic ulcers
Patients with arterial/venous ulcers due to circulation issues with artery or vein
Patients with non-healing wounds due to trauma or surgical wounds
Patients with burn injuries
Anyone with an open wound
